Pre-Chinese New Year Gathering At Mun Choong Restaurant, Ipoh

EACH YEAR WE COLLEAGUES GATHER TOGETHER TO HAVE A "STOP WORK LUNCH" also known as SAU KOONG CHAU in Cantonese.... Though a few of us have retired, we still anticipate and look forward to seeing each other before the Chinese lunar year ends.  This year is no different, exactly one week from now is the Chinese New Year and before that happens, our group organized a get-together.

Thanks to the modern technology of group chatting in smart phones, our plan went on schedule and this year, we had our gathering at Mun Choong Restaurant just this afternoon.  Our theme for this year is RED!  *Ang Ang* as in Hokkien dialect.... and it was a really fun and enjoyable meal, meeting up with my ex-colleagues again for this auspicious season.  From the pictures below, our group seems to be getting smaller in size.... We miss one friend who couldn't make it at the last minute and we hope that she will be able to make it after the Chinese New Year.  Yes, we already planned ahead... our next meal will be in Yellow... LOL...

And now.. pictures of the food and my lovely friends in Red... all look so vibrant joyful....  ahemmm... 
Both of us were the early birds... so we captured a picture of us proving so... LOL... 
And the rest came soon after.... 
Our first dish... a combination of this and that in sweet plum sauce... 
And as we stood up and used the chopsticks to mix everything together,
we wished Good Wishes to ourselves... LOL... 
After our appetizer, the Marinated Pork Ribs is served... 
Steamed Ginger Chicken...
Kailan with yummy Yam...
hhhmmm... what shall I call this?
Lastly and not least, their signature Beancurd... 
THE ANG-ANG LADIES!
YES, EVERYTHING WAS GOOD... 
We ended our gathering wishing everyone...
SUN LEEN FAI LOK
*A HAPPY NEW YEAR*

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
